When someone commissions artwork it becomes something personal to them. When chosen for a commission, my job is to first listen, then consult, then create. In this way we build something that can be treasured. This is why I put a lot of thought and work into each piece I do, whether design, art, or photography.
What to include in a request:
If specific concepts are needed, be as specific about what you want as possible. If you're looking for a character sketch, include things like name, body type, features, colors, personality, background, etc. If it's for a website or logo, include spot colors and fonts needed, scope of project, concepts and metaphors to be used, what the project will be used for, etc. For events, tell me the day and time it will take place, the background of the event, and what's needed. I will return your emails with additional questions if needed. If you're unsure that's okay too - we'll work through the process together.
Why do I not have specific rates?
There are many considerations when doing art and design, especially with the wide scope of projects I can perform. This includes the time it takes to create the artwork, research time, the years of schooling and experience behind it, the cost of materials, drive time, the detailing needed for the design, etc. This is why it is hard to tie down blanket rates for a piece of art. There are examples of rates at the bottom of the page, however I will send you a breakdown of the price when you receive your quote.
Timelines for completed artwork will vary depending on time of year, scope of the project, current schedule, etc. If you need your artwork sent to you by a specific date, please let me know during your quote so I can work with you to accommodate for it. If you do not have a specific deadline, work with me to make one - otherwise other work will become higher priority and the project won't be completed in a timely manner (or ever).
Feel free to request status updates, I will keep you updated on progress as well. During each phase of creation I will send you a low res digital update through email; that way if you need to make any revisions during the process you can let me know. I allow two revisions per update.
By law, copyright is specifically attributed to the artist unless a contract has been drawn to change copyright ownership to the buyer. If you are using this art for your own personal use (putting it on a website with credit, printing for personal use, etc.) there should not be an issue. If you plan to use the art for commercial use, for example sales, t-shirts, greeting cards, logos, prints, etc. that will be sold to the public, this must be stated in the commission request.
Payment can be made through paypal, venmo, cash locally, or once the quote has been agreed upon I will email you my mailing address to send a check. I will start working on the artwork once 50% down payment has been made. Once final update has been approved, the rest of the payment will be required before delivery of project.
